Re: svn 1.0 in 2006 or now?

Maybe having a process (or a guarantee that a process would exist) to roll
out a repository to storage in a suitable form and then roll it into a
future updated (modified API/Code/Etc) repository would be enough for folks
to use SVN for more projects, even in its present form.

I don't know whether this would be more trouble than touching up the last
bits to go to 1.0 or not.
